From the summit of Deception Peak (12,250’) and the intersection of the Skyline Trail begins one of the most intense trails in New Mexico. Raven’s Ridge parallels the Wilderness boundary and strictly follows its namesake ridge for its entire length, this means whatever the ridge does, the trail does. This means STEEP, both up and down. You will hike at some point. The trail eventually begins to descend extremely steeply before you finally reach the piece de resistance, an extended rocky, off-camber downhill directly along side the barbed wire fence of the Wilderness boundary. Its simple, you crash, you get a barbed wire catch fence. If you do not consider yourself an advanced rider this trail will be a scenic hike. If you are an advanced rider and you don’t like raw trails, you will hate this trail. However, if you are the special kind of person that loves nasty, steep, scary, gnar, then this trail is everything you have ever wanted.
